In my documents, I have a cover page and some intro pages, then the page numbering starts at p6 or p8. Rather than doing the math to subtract 6 or 8 pages to find where I want to go, I'd like to have the setup I always see in professional PDFs--of having the top toolbar display "i-viii, 1-500," or the like, so when I type 300 there it'll go to my document's page 300, not 292. Does that make sense? Again I see it all the time, when i'm trying to print something, and for my print range I have to put i-25, because the first page isn't 1.
FWIW, I'm using Acrobat Pro 8 on a Mac, but also own Acrobat Pro X and Pro CS4 for Win.
This is for Windows, Acrobat XI:
In the Page Numbering dialog box in the Numbering section, select the number format under Style (for example, i, ii, iii …) and click OK.
To test it, I use CTRL+SHIFT+N and type a page number.
